Jesus del Pozo
Jesus Del Pozo was a Spanish fashion designer born in Madrid in 1946. Opening his first boutique in 1974, Del Pozo was embarking on his career at the same time as Spain was beginning to transition from the dictatorship of Franco to democracy. The change in politics coincided with a change in social values now described as La Movida. Del Pozo, as an artist and designer, played an important part in this "Movement" and was regarded as a key influence in the modernization of Spanish style.
From his boutique on Almirante Street—a hub of the cultural vanguard in Madrid—Del Pozo took inspiration from the past and married it with his own unique personal vision to move fashion forward in Spain. Originally desiging for men, his women's designs would ultimately prove more successful. His first collection was shown in 1976. Del Pozo would go on to receive the Golden Needle award in 1981, National Award Cristobal Balenciaga in 1989, and he was the first fashion designer to receive the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts in 1998.
In the 1990s, Del Pozo made several lucrative moves that brought greater success to the house. He began desinging ready-to-wear and bridal wear, and in 1992, introduced his first perfume, Duende for women. Perfumes became an important piece of the Del Pozo brand's offering, with Halloween (1997) becoming an international best-seller and spinning off a series of limited editions and flankers in future years.
Del Pozo passed away in August 2011, leaving behind a legacy of beautiful fashions for an important time in Spain's history, as well as a legacy of education and professionalism in the fashion industry.
Designer Jesus Del Pozo has 30 perfumes in their fragrance base. The earliest edition was created in 1992 and the newest is from 2014. Jesus Del Pozo fragrances were made in collaboration with perfumers Pierre Wargnye, Marie Salamagne, Jean Christophe Herault, Celine Barel, Olivier Polge, Fabrice Pellegrin, Olivier Cresp, Alberto Morillas, Max Gavarry, Hamid Merati-Kashani, Carlos Benaim, Nicolas Beaulieu, Christophe Raynaud, Christine Nagel, Francis Kurkdjian, Violaine David and Christopher Sheldrake.
